Laurence Campbell - Arch Street, Philadelphia

Campbell, born in Philadelphia January 21, 1940 grew up a few blocks from the Philadelphia Museum of Art and visited there often throughout his youth. He studied architecture at Temple University and for several years had his own building business. But he always painted, including commissions for clients who wanted to have copies of well known artists of the past, to which he always signed his name as the reproducer. He also did fine art restoration and is of the opinion that this is a most effective way to study and master the art of painting. He has never joined any art associations and shuns publicity. Rarely seen in public, his constant companion is his wife, Evie. They have a grown son, Steve and a granddaughter, Ashley.
